Ordered a variety of chocolates for Christmas gifts. Everything arrived promptly and really well packaged. Everyone I gave the chocolates to came back saying how delicious the chocolates were, particularly the whiskey truffles. Really happy, would definitely buy again.

Lovely place! Free chocolate tastings! Great vivid protocol and lovely staff, the cafe is currently closed and according to staff from tomorrow they will be closed to the public I guess until the next season! So just a heads up to anyone looking to visit.

I visited Skellig Chocolate with my husband daughter and boyfriend a few weeks ago. I was really impressed with the welcome we got, we got to taste a sample of all the different truffles there so we could make a decision to buy the favourite ones. All were delicious mouthwatering so it was a hard decision. I particularly liked the box with the combination of all the different truffles. Then to finish off our visit we went to the coffee shop and had delicious biscuit cake and rhubarb tart. It was a lovely visit and made our day!!! 👍🥳

Stopped in this lovely chocolate factory while traveling through the Ring of Kerry. A wonderful surprise! This was the first place in Ireland to check my temperature before entering. Very organised and friendly. The chocolate sampling was an exquisite experience. The coffee shop had very interesting and unusual treats! Highly recommended!

My very favourite chocolate - Citrus White Chocolate Truffles - to die for!!! Beauty of area is a bonus, pity cafe was closed though (damn covid 19!) I'd have loved a hot chocolate. Got some lovely chocolate salted caramel chocs for my bff too!

Well worth the drive from anywhere in Ireland, nevermind a stop on the ring of kerry.Met by friendly, covid efficient staff who took our temperature and ensured we sanitized our hands and then onto the chocolate tasting...I wont spoil the surprise but we got to taste around 7 or 8 pieces of chocolate 🙂 all for free, so of course we ended up spending a fortune buying enough chocolate to last us a year... if we are able to control ourselves and not eat all that deliciousness in one go!!
07:19 19 Sep 20
Yes yes yes of doing the ring of kerry this is a must go to place

Truly a fantastic spot! Very warm and welcoming staff (doing their bit to try mitigate COVID-19 risk). Great experience seeing chocolate being made in a local business community, and the opportunity to chat with a Chocolatier and taste the variety was fantastic. Has a really nice cafe with views over the skelligs. We visited twice! Great to support an Irish business also well done!

Went today with our 17month baby girls. Absolutely fabulous service from start to finish. Met the loveliest lady giving chocolate samples who also was a mum of twins! Excellent info on all of the range of chocolates and we purchased some too on her recommendation. The cafe is lovely, high chairs available, I recommend having a hot chocolate! Great place to visit. Absolutely faultless. Thanks to all for a lovely time.

We are regular visitors and that confirms our opinion that not only do Skelligs Chocolate make wonderful products, the "factory"/cafe visit is a great experience also. We have now introduced the next generation of passionate aficionados, i. e. our grandchildren, who would be sorely disappointed if the annual visit when on holidays did not happen. Well done all associated with this great place.

Fabulous place to visit! Wonderful, kind staff who clearly explained the process in place to keep everyone safe! Beautiful chocolate and a great selection, in a peanut safe area (comforting as a peanut allergy sufferer) and amazing aroma and service. Highly recommend!

Free to get in, only queued for 10 mins with amazing views, staff were very friendly and helpful. Choc tasting when we went in. Bought some lovely tasting chocolate. Sign up and get 10% discount. We were given two scratch cards and won a free coffee which was just what I needed. Clean tidy and well run facility. Choc favours are amazing.

Dropped by on our summer holiday. There were the inevitable covid queues to check in - temperatures, sanitiser, and name and contact, done with unflagging smiles and enthusiasm. Great shop with a big selection at a range of prices. Really gorgeous chocolate.

Great experience. We received recommendations by multiple locals to stop here enroute. Very unique chocolate flavours and great that you can see the whole process with how open plan it is. Aside from it being odd eating chocolate at 9:30 in the morning, it was a great experience and would recommend it to others.

Heavenly chocolate in a heavenly setting. We have been visiting Skelligs Chocolate Factory since it was a very small operation with only about three rooms. It has now expanded into a wonderful place to visit and also to purchase the nicest chocolate you will eat. The staff are ALWAYS pleasant and helpful. And the views of and from St Finian's Bay are just magic.

We absolutely loved Ireland, the sights, sounds, smells and TASTES. One of our favorite stops was in St Finian’s Bay at Skelligs Chocolate. It was difficult to make a decision after tasting all the wonderful chocolate but we bought some to enjoy right away and had an order shipped back to America for the rest of the family to enjoy. I’m sure I will be placing future orders!!!

We have visited multiple times over the last few years during our vacations to Ireland. The people and atmosphere are very welcoming. The tastings are delicious and we love getting to try their new flavors. The chocolate is absolutely fantastic! They are the best truffles I have ever had!

I have been purchasing Skelligs Chocolate for some time now and my family and I love this chocolate. The chocolate is far superior than some other brands out there. It has a beautiful taste and is very smooth to the pallet. I find the staff in Skelligs Chocolate to be extremely helpful and can't do enough for you and whenever I have an issue it is rectified straight away.

Very modern facility for an area which is so far away from the main towns of Kerry. Very friendly service. You go in and get a free tasting of the chocolate made on site. The lad who was serving us was sound and happy to engage in conversation with us. Lovely cafe here too.Oh the chocolate is amazing so do treat yourself to a box for the way back home.

Amazing place to visit just on the ring of Skelligs. As you walk in you are offered a taste of their chocolate. Top quality product and their bar is a treat that you can not miss

Really nice place, when you go in they offer you a taste of some of the different chocolates they make. All were delicious and ended up buying a few. Great range, including whiskey and gin and tonic flavours. We went on a Sunday so they weren't making chocolate at the time but if you go on a weekday you can see the whole process. There is a nice luke cafe there as well. Basically if you like chocolate it is a good place to go, if you are on a diet stay away.

A wonderful Chocolate shop and Cafe. They offer free chocolate tastings. We bought the White Chocolate Raspberry and the Salted Caramel Chocolates. Both were absolutely delicious. The Chocolate Chunk Cookie from the cafe was also great. A lovely stop when travelling the Ring of Skellig.

We stopped here on a whim on our Ring of Kerry drive, and were so happy we did. We got to taste several kinds of chocolate made there on site, and afterwards my in-laws bought a bunch while my wife ate a piece of homemade cheesecake. I had a coffee to sharpen the edges before getting back on the road which was very good. Worth a stop!

Its a chocolate factory. What's not to love. The chocolate is expensive, but fabulous. Have a cinnamon hot chocolate while you're there. The location is amazing with views out to sea. A must visit if you're touring South Kerry

Perfect chocolate!! We came for the free chocolate tasting on our trip around the Ring of Kerry. We left with a few bags of chocolate to devour and share with our families back home! I'm certain we will be ordering chocolate online until we can make another trip!!

I absolutely adore this place I come here as often as I can, I think a good addition would be to add an ice cream bar for the summer.

There are not enough good things I can say about my experience with Skellig. Ordered the caramel egg for an Easter treat for someone. I was lucky enough to try it myself also, and I really do mean lucky enough. The chocolate is delicious, but the caramel is the best I've ever had. 100% buying again next year. Also they processed and delivered the order very quickly. 15/10 will eat again

This place is fantastic and is in such a beautiful location. Also it is FREE in!! My kids had a ball we went in and a member of staff immediately invited us for some chocolate tasting!! There is a lovely cafe with lots of sweet treats and you can purchase many different items made out of Skellig chocolate as gifts! Staff are wonderful and so friendly I can’t wait to go back! Did I mention it was FREE!!!

We were allowed to taste the chocolate we wanted to buy first. I thought it would make it easier to sort out the one we did not like. It didn't. Everything was scrumptious.

Make the stop on your tour of the Ring of Kerry and enjoy some amazing chocolates. I particularly loved the sign for unattended children. This is a great place to get out of the car without the need to bring your camera. A nice clean bathroom and cafe awaits you after those long winding roads.

I went here with my family, this is a lovely place to visit, you can see clearly how they make the chocolate and there are people giving you different chocolates for tasting, the orange and dark chocolate is my favorite. There is an cafe in there as well, they do cakes and coffees, you should definitely try out their hot chocolate, they have a lot of choices, milk, dark, white, caramel, chili and mint. The cafe have a nice sitting area inside and outside, and it has a nice garden as well. On the way to the Skellig chocolate there is a beach, you can also get down there and take some pictures
Kate Chan

A great place to visit if you are touring the area. Stunning views and a lovely beach nearby. Take the tasting tour of the factory and sample every type of chocolate they make, they are all delicious. Then buy some of your favourites at the shop. Also pop into the cafe for a bite to eat and a hot chocolate, probably the best hot chocolate I have ever had. Absolutely delicious! It total you would spend 40 mins or so there so it's a good place to visit as a pit stop on your journey. I will definitely be going back next time I visit the area.

A great place for the whole family to visit. Generous chocolate tasting with friendly and relaxed staff and an amazing range of products. Plus a cafe full of sweet treats guaranteed to sabotage any diet! Outdoor seating as well with Atlantic waves breaking only yards away. If you can't get here you can order online.

A Chocolate lovers delight! The staff were very informative and generous during the tasting. The factory is open so you can see the chocolate being made as your eyeing up your chocolate purchase! It’s kid friendly with a decent cafe & also a picnic area. Well worth stopping into for a visit!

  • Thank you for choosing Skelligs Chocolate. We work hard at making the best possible chocolate we can and we do our best to make sure it arrives in the same condition as it left us.

    Here in Ireland, hot weather is rarely an issue, but what is it like where you are sending this chocolate? We have no control over the way it is transported and how long it stays in hot trucks or depots.

    Unfortunately, we cannot take responsibility for the condition of the chocolate you send.

    If you are happy to take responsibility please just tick the box and proceed.

    If you would like to discuss this with us please email us at or call us on 00 353 66 9479119 to discuss what we can do for you.


    Tips for Warm Weather Shipping:

    • Please be aware that we use a registered postal delivery service so all packages are tracked and must be signed for on delivery. If there is no one available to sign for the package, please be aware your chocolate will be put back on the truck and stored in the nearest depot for collection.
    • If possible, ship to a business address. Businesses usually receive packages earlier in the morning and someone is always onsite to receive the package. This way your product isn’t exposed to the hot sun all day.
    • After receiving your package, let it rest at room temperature to provide items time to set before opening.
